There is only one Bethenny Frankel in the Real Housewives franchise. Even though almost every Real Housewife does the most to monitize her status as a reality TV star, more often than not, these business ventures are actually pretty cheesy. Some women endorse hair growth vitamins while they’re obviously wearing extensions, others have no shame pushing laxative teas, others are proud to rock blinged out running sneakers. These ladies are hustlers, that’s for sure.
In Dolores Catania’s case, describing her next business move as “cheesy” is actually appropriate and not-at-all insulting. This is because the Real Housewives of New Jersey star actually has her very own line of cheese for the Real Housewives fans (and whoever else) to enjoy.
There is just so much reality TV action to keep up with, from the shows themselves, to the latest headlines in between seasons, and then there are all of the social media posts. No need to worry about keeping up with the Instagram posts though. This week’s Instagram Roundup has you covered with all of the best, weirdest, and most interesting reality TV star photos from the week.
Margaret’s mother Marge Sr. is a total gem and a half. She really deserves more screen time, or maybe they can just have the mother/daughter duo as full-time cast members. Aside from her adorable scenes with her mom, Margaret had some good moments with Siggy’s BFF Dolores Catania, and the queen of the show Teresa Giudice.
Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
Let’s hope that Luann de Lessepsdidn’t log into Instagram after she checked out of rehab earlier this week. She might feel a little bit slighted by her Real Housewives of New York costars. They did some sort of jail-themed workout class, complete with mock mugshots. Shade much? Or is it a merely a coincidence? I’m going to assume that it’s the former and just hope that this ends up contributing to a story line next season.
Aside from those glorious faux mugshots, there were some other great reality star photos for this week’s Instagram roundup.
Now Danielle and Teresa are on good terms, but the same cannot be said about Danielle andCaroline Manzo, Dolores Catania, and Siggy Flicker– which is surprising to just about no one. Speaking of Danielle’s beefs, she recently revealed that she has issues with Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes.
Now-former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Siggy Flicker was a guest of Kevin Undergaro on The Tomorrow Show this week and she let her opinions fly free. Siggy shared her thoughts on a number of topics ranging from her experiences working with Harvey Weinstein to her relationship with Margaret Josephs, exiting the show after two seasons and so much more! She also reveals that she will NOT be watching RHONJ next season and also doesn’t believe the friendship between Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub is genuine.
Siggy shared that doing reality TV is hard work and that it wasn’t her choice to drag out the stupid cake story for so long. She is convinced that there wouldn’t have been any material for season 8 if it wasn’t for her.
“I’ve watched the whole season and I was shocked and I was upset. It takes a toll on you.” Reality TV is not really reality TV. It is a lot of work and you constantly have to bring up the same thing over and over and over. Do you think I want to talk about cake and a I make up a storyline: ‘let’s talk about cake for five episodes’ – I was over the cake after it happened.” She adds, “What you see is what you get with me. If there wasn’t a cake, and there wasn’t the Soggy-Siggy, there would be no season 8. The whole season was Soggy, Siggy, cake, Hitler–everything that I didn’t want stretched out to 13 episodes. I don’t know what it was, but the whole season, I was the target all season.” She does give credit to the other cast members, though, saying everyone “brought it” this season.
